SkoleTube and AhaSlides: A New Partnership Bringing Interactive Edtech to Denmark
As the top online media platform for education in Denmark, SkoleTube has largely free range when it comes to the interactive technology it provides for both teachers and students.
In September 2020 SkoleTube launched a new partnership with AhaSlides to bring innovative, collaborative edtech to more than 600,000 students representing 90% of the entire Danish schooling system. The partnership will be active for the next 3 years and will inspire students and teachers to forge new manners of connected learning in an ever-changing environment.
The vast majority of educators and learners in Denmark will now be able to use AhaSlides’ interactive polls, quizzes, and slides in the same way that thousands of educators around the world have already done; to increase engagement and create a fun, communal environment in their classrooms.
Of the new partnership, SkoleTube CEO Marcus Bennick said:
I wanted AhaSlides for SkoleTube’s arsenal of productivity and educational tools, because having a tool like AhaSlides, in which both teacher and pupils have a chance to easily build interactive presentations, will add engagement and connection between the presenter and the audience. We believe that this can take presentations to a higher level and, by that, actually make a difference for kids’ learning and education.

What is AhaSlides and How Can it Benefit SkoleTube Users?
AhaSlides is an interactive presentation and polling tool that stimulates collaboration, engagement, and comprehension between presenters and their audience. It is the software of choice for teachers and educators in 185 countries, including Denmark.
As SkoleTube continue their mission to foster connected learning opportunities for Denmark’s school system, they are focusing on software that encourages students to use their mobile phones, rather than shunning them, to commit to meaningful learning. AhaSlides connects students and teachers through activities that take place on their favourite devices, leading to a better, more modern, more inclusive learning environment.
4 Ways in Which AhaSlides Will Benefit SkoleTube Users
- Connected learning — The communal nature of AhaSlides means that student input is hugely enhanced through the software. All activities on AhaSlides have the option to be anonymous, meaning that reserved students will have equal say and students that tend to jump on the bandwagon will form their own opinions.
- Fun lessons — Students will be able to take part in brainstorming sessions, quizzes, interactive polls and thought-based Q&A sessions. They also have opportunities to lead their own fun activities, which help to increase their understanding of the topics being discussed along with their confidence in presenting them.
- User-friendly interface — The design of the AhaSlides interface makes it simple for educators and learners of any digital ability to use the software. Its ease of use and potential for student-led learning were principle features in SkoleTube’s decision to forge the partnership.
- Cloud-operation — AhaSlides’ software works in both the real classroom and the virtual one. It gives remote students a chance to take part in collective learning, even if they’re present in a digital environment.
We’re so excited for AhaSlides to begin this new partnership with SkoleTube. Working side-by-side with such an esteemed online platform to help carve out a new, interactive learning environment in Denmark is a huge honour for us. It is a real testament to our software’s adaptability, connectivity and suitability in the field of education.
